Can you believe all of this beauty in our yard?  The Roses begin blooming in May and will continue off and on until late Fall.  The joy for us is that not all of them bloom at the same time... SO--we always have something blooming --which is nice!  I included the dates when I took the photos so that you will get an idea of when these were blooming.

Our Roses are Hybrid Teas and Grandifloras--and my husband takes GREAT care of them--even getting rid of those stinkin' Japanese Beetles...  We also have to keep the deer away --so George sprays Liquid Fence ALOT during this season.  We've been pretty lucky so far this year --although there were FIVE deer in our yard last Saturday.  Luckily,  the mailman drove up and scared them away!!!!! Whew!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday --and be sure to jump over to my Photo Blog (click HERE) to see one more 'group' photo of a very very favorite Rose of mine.
